Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
The fourth film in the Mission: Impossible film series, "Ghost Protocol" stars Tom Cruise, Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner & Simon Pegg. When a terrorist bombing destroys the Kremlin, the U.S. government initiates a black ops "ghost protocol" and disavows the entire Impossible Mission Force. Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team are to be blamed for the attack, but are allowed to escape as part of a plan to enable them to operate in the dark, outside of their agency. However, Hunt is warned that if any member of his team is captured during their mission, they will be charged as terrorists planning to incite global nuclear war. Ethan is then forced to work with ex-IMF agent Brandt (Renner), who knows more about Hunt and his past than even Hunt himself.

Tom Cruise has signed on to star in 'Mission: Impossible 5'.

The actor is officially set to reprise his role as secret agent Ethan Hunt in the fifth installment of the action franchise after inking a deal with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions, reports Deadline.

Cruise could re-team with Christopher McQuarrie - who directed him in last year's 'Jack Reacher' - on the project as the director is reportedly set to helm the film, however, Paramount has yet to finalise a writer/director.

The new film would follow 2011's hit blockbuster 'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' which was well received by critics and earned nearly $700 million worldwide. That film was directed by Brad Bird and saw 'Avengers' star Jeremy Renner join the franchise while Simon Pegg reprised his role as technician Benji Dunn.

Meanwhile, Paramount and Skydance are also reportedly mulling a sequel to action flick 'Jack Reacher', which grossed over $200 million.

Cruise - who was most recently seen in sci-fi blockbuster 'Oblivion' - has also signed on to star in a big screen adaptation of TV show 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' The Warner Bros. production will co-star Armie Hammer and will be directed by Guy Ritchie.
